Homeschool Expeditions

Learning Adventures

Each 60-minute class for grades 1-5 covers various topics including animal science, life science, and physical science. Homeschool parents are actively involved so they can answer questions at home and further develop subjects that grab their kids’ interest. Please dress for the weather as classes may include time in the Zoo. Classes are designed for adult interaction with children. Adult attendance is required; each child over six months and each adult must have an individual ticket. Classes take place from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

October 19 – Bat’s, Cat’s and Spider’s. OH MY!
This season we will take a look at some of the common autumn critters and talk about the importance (or harm) these animals have on the ecosystems in which they live.

November 16 – Feast or Famine
Winter happens every year. For us, it means fires, hot cocoa, and puffy coats, but what about our animal friends? We will talk about how their behavior and even their diet changes when the temperature drops.

December 21 – Winter Solstice
This class lands on the shortest day of the year for us in the northern hemisphere so how could we not talk about it! We will learn about things in their relation to sunlight, from the plants we eat to the animals we never see.

Homeschool parents are actively involved in the classes. Contact the Education Department at 316-266-8213 for questions or more information.
